i'm a super proud wife, so i have to take a moment to brag about my amazing husband . . .
at our house, we have a bilco door which leads from our back yard to a storage space underneath our back porch. when you open up the bilco door there are three very old wooden steps which take you below the house. we have lived in our house for nearly six years now, and for nearly six years we have been saying that those steps need to be replaced. the wood is completely rotten and upon close inspection a few days ago, ryan found out that the the entire stair unit was being held in place by one nail. it's really amazing that we didn't fall through those stupid stairs yet!
recently, the steps seemed to get even worse really quickly. they were sagging whenever we walked on them, and they were moving so much. it was downright scary. we headed to the hardware store (ryan's version of a toy store) and bought some supplies to build a new staircase. we figured it would be a good summer project one day.
i am so impressed with that amazing husband of mine. i love how he can envision a project and then just goes out and gets it done in record time. ryan added a fourth step in order to bring the stairs up to code because three steps was not enough. the stairs look great and they are so sturdy now. i love them! ryan's looking forward to staining the wood soon. even though he considered this to be just a "small project" i'm so impressed! thanks, hubby!
have a wonderful weekend!
